Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said we know we are descending down on the battlefield with fewer votes. We know it seems our numbers are low. But even with these small numbers, we are giving the government a tough time, he said.

“InshaAllah, Senate elections will be a victory for democracy and for democratic candidates. And Yousuf Raza Gilani’s win will usher in a new chapter of democracy.

We are telling everyone: give this crumbling wall the final push,” he added.
